The Advanced Placement Physics C course offered by the College Board in the United States of America has two variants. While one deals with electricity and magnetism, the other one concentrates on Newtonian mechanics. Both are subjects that demand a lot of attention and long study hours. However, if a student feels cut out for the same, they could choose to appear for the exam that will enable them to study this course in college. |
The AP Physics C electricity and magnetism course delves deeper into electromagnetism and often utilities concepts from calculus. In this course, students will have to deal with topics like electrostatics, electric circuits, magnetic fields, conductors and capacitors. However, in AP Physics C Mechanics, students will learn more about Newton’s theories related to mechanics. Not only will they acquire more knowledge about his laws of motion, but also work, power and energy. In addition, they will have to deal with kinematics, rotation, oscillation and gravity. Generally, the electricity and mechanism course is taught after students have completed the one on mechanism.
5 Steps to a 5 AP Physics C, 2014-2015 is a good book to use for students who are preparing to sit for the AP Physics C exam. Not only does this book offer all the information, terms and concepts, but also tests for a variety of purposes. For instance, a lot of books have practice tests, however this book provides a diagnostic test as well. Using this test, a student can diagnose exactly where they stand, in respect to the entire curriculum. This test can prepare a student for the work that lies ahead.
However, before actually attempting the diagnostic test, all students should create a study schedule that suits them the most. As this book offers three types of schedules, students are free to choose the one that fits their requirements the best. The AP Physics C 2014 – 2015 eBook also provides a range of strategies, tips and tricks, which will allow aspirants to maximize their time and complete the exam more effectively.
The book covers all the important segments of the course and also provides detailed answers, along with analyses. The book is updated using the last completed AP exam and inputs from students who have actually appeared for the same. Towards the end of the book, there are also two practice tests. These tests too are created on the exact same lines as the actual AP exam, and students should try to complete the same with a clock at hand. This is also a great way to judge how much more effort is required.
Two authors have collaborated on this book and they are Greg Jacobs and Joshua Schulman. Both of them have been associated with the field of physics and the publishing house of McGraw-Hill since long. The eBook can be downloaded into laptops, smartphones, Kindle and Blue Fire readers.
